I have a Mac running Sierra version 10.12.6 which was pushed out here in the UK in the last few days. I have a Canon MG7750. I print photographs from Adobe Lightroom and sometimes just from the Preview app on the Mac. When using Lightroom I like to have Lightroom do the Colour Management. Since there is no option with Canon to turn off the printer colour management I believe it is necessary to achieve this using the Colour Matching Menu in the Print dialogue box. However, I don't see that menu or the Colour Options menu. All I see are the options Media & Quality, Layout, Paper Handling and Cover Page.
I dowloaded the latest driver for this printer from the Canon website yesterday but when I try to open Canon_IJ Setup it doesn't respond.
I spoke to Canon UK about this today and they said they have had several people reporting this. They say it is an Apple issue and suggested uninstalling and re-isntalling the drivers. However all I can find is a file downloaded yestereday entitled com.apple.print.custompresets.forprinter.Canon_MG7700_series.plist. I don't know whether this is the driver and whether moving this to Trash and dowloading the file again will do the trick. The girl at Canon UK said she doesn't use a Mac so can't help.
I suggested that the issue might be that Canon hasn't caught up with the lastest Mac OS release which she said could be the case. All in all not very helpful.
Meanwhile I can no longer print photos without getting hideous clolour casts. Knew I should have bought an Epson!
Anyone else got this problem? Is there a solution or is it user error
By the way I just hit the Spoiler Tag button by mistake. No idea what it is but I can't undo it!
Solved! Go to Solution.

Based on what you described, It is recommended that you contact one of Canon's Technical Support Representatives. To contact a Technical Support Representative, please use the link below:

I don't have your printer, I have a Pro-100 and a MX-472, but:
1. I am running Sierra 10.12.26 on a MacBook Air
2. I have Canon IJ driver - 184.108.40.206 for Pro-100 and 220.127.116.11 for MX-472
I just ran a test print and it prints fine on both printers.
When you print from Lightroom and let LR manage color by choosing an ICC profile for your paper the driver automatically switches to ColorSync and grays-out the selection options. You can see that by going to the Color Matching dropdown.
So, I can say whether your issue is related to the update, but it doesn't seem to be a universal problem.

When you look in System Preferences->Printers and Scanners at the printer do you see the Bonjour printer or a MG series printer.
The Bonjour printer is a very limited driver.
Click the "+" symbol to add a printer and wait for the series printer to appear.

It looks like you have "show display profiles" checked in Lightroom.
Uncheck that and you won't see the ones you mentioned. It also sounds like you aren't seeing any of the paper profiles?
I'm just guessing here, since I never had that happen, but maybe try first reinstalling printer using the supplied CD?
It also sounds like you aren't getting the printer driver when you select "Print" in Lightroom?

Maybe there is something that will help in this thread.
